"Title Case a Sentence" challenge isn't accepted even good results

Hi, Anyone knows why this solution is not acceptable by FreeCodeCamp?
my code:

function titleCase(str) {
  var a = str.split(' ');
  var x = " ";
  var z = [" "];
  var y= " ";
   for(var i=0;i<a.length;i++)
       x=x+y.charAt(0).toUpperCase()+ y.slice(1)+" ";
  return x;

titleCase("I'm a little tea pot");

You code outputs unnecessary spaces at the beginning and end. Instead of "I’m A Little Teapot"
you get " I’m A Little Teapot "

you do have an extra varaible, but here is my solution… not sure what’s going on there.

function titleCase(str) {

var arr=str.split(’ ');//split a ’ '
for(var i=0; i<arr.length; i++){ //for loop checking each place in array

var a = arr[i];// puts array str (word) into a variable a
var B= a.charAt(0).toUpperCase();//takes first leter, puts in B and capitolizes it
a = a.slice(1,a.length).toLowerCase();//now takes word from 2nd letter and lowers it
arr[i]= B.concat(a); //concat (combines) Upper letter stored in B with rest of Lowr word in 'a' and assigns it back to array

str=arr.join(’ ');//joins array with spaces and reassigns str
return str;

titleCase(“I’m a little tea pot”);*/

Your line #11 is:

x=x+y.charAt(0).toUpperCase()+ y.slice(1)+" ";

Since y = " " and the last thing you have on this line is + " " your first and last character will have a space before and after.

The only thing you can do with your existing code is change your last function statement to:

  return x.trim();// trim() removes all white space at beginning and end of string
